Text Quotes
Local and regional food systems are about opportunity  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) At President Obama’s direction, the U.S Department of Agriculture is working hard to unleash the power of America’s innovators and entrepreneurs to build a green energy economy.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) A healthy workforce is essential to grow our state and compete in the global marketplace. These actions are important to improve the health security of Iowans by making healthcare more affordable and accessible  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) President Obama has expressed his commitment to responsible stewardship of our land, water, and other natural resources. And one way of restoring the land to its natural condition is what we are doing here today - breaking pavement for the People’s Garden  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Over the past two years, the Obama Administration and USDA have worked to build a foundation for sustainable economic growth in rural America. At the center of our vision is an effort to increase domestic production and use of renewable energy  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) In his first year in office, President Obama pulled us back from the brink of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression and worked to lay a new foundation for economic growth. The president identified three key strategies to build that lasting prosperity: innovation, investment, and education  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Democrats have always historically referred to our families as working families, and I have sort of changed that moniker. I think what we have is a nation of worried families - families that are concerned about job security, families who thought their pensions were secure and now have questions  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) But It doesn’t make sense for us to have a continued reliance on a supply of oil where whenever there is unrest in another part of the world, gasoline prices jump up. We need a renewable fuel industry that’s more than corn-based, of course, and there are a whole series of great opportunities here  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) I grew up in a city. My parents would think there was something wrong with America if they knew I was secretary of agriculture  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the food you eat has been touched by immigrant hands, and it is fair to say some of them are not here as they should be here. But if you didn’t have these folks, you would be spending a lot more - three, four or five times more - for food, or we would have to import food and have all the food security risks  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) People don’t understand rural America. Sixteen percent of our population is rural, but 40 percent of our military is rural. I don’t believe that’s because of a lack of opportunity in rural America. I believe that’s because if you grow up in rural America, you know you can’t just keep taking from the land. You’ve got to give something back  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) In the past 40 years, the United States lost more than a million farmers and ranchers. Many of our farmers are aging. Today, only nine percent of family farm income comes from farming, and more and more of our farmers are looking elsewhere for their primary source of income  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) If we truly want an innovative and creative renewable fuel industry, then it needs to be challenged. And if we create a set of protections that allow it to not be as creative and innovative as possible, then we aren’t doing a service to the industry or to the people of this country  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) You know, this country today, it seems to me--it’s about fear. And it shouldn’t be about fear. It should be about hope and optimism and creativity and accepting a challenge and being a moral leader and being a great nation  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) I don’t care what anybody says: Nothing is better than a tomato you grow. There’s something about it that’s different than a tomato you can buy. It’s a great thing.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Food is a fairly significant aspect of my life. I have struggled mightily with food. With my weight. And I’m conscious of it. So I have a sensitivity to people who struggle with their weight.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Let us build a 21st-century rural economy of cutting-edge companies and technologies that lead us to energy and food security. Such an investment will revitalize rural America, re-establish our moral leadership on climate security and eliminate our addiction to foreign oil.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Strong communities ... embrace change. New discoveries require us to think differently and approach things differently, to think anew.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) It is critical to develop a biofuel industry powered by feedstocks produced in every corner of the country, in addition to the Midwest. That is why USDA has established five regional research centers working on science necessary to ensure profitable biofuels can be produced from a diverse range of feedstocks.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Rural Americans want leaders who help middle-class communities to plan and prosper over the long-term - not opportunists who reap the rewards for themselves, leaving nothing for the people who do the sowing.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Today, President Obama is making smart investments in clean energy - wind, solar, biofuels - as part of an all-of-the-above energy strategy that supports thousands of jobs, not in the Middle East, but in the Midwest.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) The rise of childhood obesity has placed the health of an entire generation at risk  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) I don’t know of a Democrat - whether they’re a conservative, a centrist or a liberal Democrat - that doesn’t think that it’s important to have quality jobs that pay decent wages so that families can support themselves, so that they can have the dignity of being able to afford health care, put money aside for pension, buy a home.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) If you think of what food is, it’s the energy we use to do our daily work. I want people to know about the USDA. This is a very important department. It’s not fully appreciated as such.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Although they are some of the hardest working folks I know, rural Americans earn, on average, $11,000 less than their urban counterparts each year. And they are more likely to live in poverty  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) My friends, history, history calls us to this time and to this place. A solemn choice rests with us - where do we go from here? Do we move slowly and incrementally? Or do we seize the challenge of our time and tackle the great issues of our day  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) You know, rural Americans are a special people. Their labor puts food on our table and fuel in our gas tanks. Their service in our military sets a powerful example of leadership, honor and sacrifice. Their spirit of community inspires us all  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It’s the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times.  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) In 2011, agricultural exports hit a record high and producers saw their best incomes in nearly 40 years  (Tom Vilsack Quotes) One out of every 12 jobs in the economy is connected in some way, shape or form to what happens on the farm  (Tom Vilsack Quotes)
